Knowledge of transport ventilator performance impacts patient safety. This study compared minute ventilation (VE ) of the MOVES and Uni-Vent 731 when ventilating the VentAid Training Test Lung with compliance (C) ranging from 0.02 to 0.10 L/cm H2 O and three different airway resistances (R) (none, Rp5, or Rp20). Tidal volume (VT ) was 800 ± 25 mL. Respiratory rate was increased to ventilator's maximum or until auto-PEEP > 5 cm H2 O. Respiratory parameters were recorded with the RSS 100HR Research Pneumotach...

Supercapacitors based on activated carbon prepared from various pollens show good specific capacitance (207 F g(-1) ) and large gravimetric and volumetric energy density (∼88 Wh kg(-1) and ∼44 Wh L(-1) , respectively) in ionic liquid electrolytes, which are much better than those of RP20 (commercial activated carbon) or graphene-based supercapacitors.

Bamboo mosaic virus (BaMV) satellite RNA (satBaMV) depends on BaMV for its replication and encapsidation. SatBaMV-encoded P20 protein is an RNA-binding protein that facilitates satBaMV systemic movement in co-infected plants. Here, we examined phosphorylation of P20 and its regulatory functions. Recombinant P20 (rP20) was phosphorylated by host cellular kinase(s) in vitro, and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry and mutational analyses revealed Ser-11 as the phosphorylation site...

A simple yellow head virus (YHV) "strip test" was developed using monoclonal antibody Y19 (against the p20 structural protein) conjugated with colloidal gold as the detector antibody. Rabbit anti-recombinant p20 (rp20) protein antibody was used as a capture antibody at the test line (T) and goat anti-mouse IgG antibody (GAM) was used as the capture antibody at the control line (C). The ready-to-use strip was housed in a plastic case for convenient application and stored in the desiccated plastic bag. A sample volume of 100 microl of either haemolymph or gill or appendage homogenates in application buffer was applied to the sample chamber at one end of the strip and allowed to flow by chromatography through the nitrocellulose membrane to the other end...

The usefulness of random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis with Ready-To-Go RAPD beads was investigated for the rapid differentiation of Corynebacterium diphtheriae isolates from Eastern Europe and neighbouring countries. A selection of 45 C. diphtheriae isolates of known origin, biotype, toxigenicity status and ribotype were examined by RAPD. Twenty RAPD profiles (designated Rp1-Rp20) were revealed among the 45 isolates. There was 100% correlation between RAPD profiles and ribotypes. Preliminary studies showed that the use of crude DNA preparations resulted in poor amplification and the patterns were not reproducible...

BACKGROUND: A prototype demand-flow medical ventilator for intensive care unit (ICU) applications has been developed with the ability to maintain continuous pressure regulation of proximal airway pressure during both inspiratory and expiratory respiratory phases. The performance of this system was investigated in laboratory tests of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) mode, a ventilatory mode in which airway pressure regulation is strongly challenged. MATERIALS & METHODS: Comparative tests of the pressure-regulating ventilator (PRV) prototype and a Puritan-Bennett 7200a (PB7200a) ventilator were made in three performance categories: pressure-volume product error, peak pressure error during inspiration, and peak pressure error during expiration...
